Exports team strengthened with 2 new managers


Tamtron Group’s headquarters at Tampere, Finland, have two new recruits in the exports team: Mr Markus Ritala and Mr Tuomas Laine. Sales manager Ritala is responsible for exports in western and southern Europe, Middle East, Africa and Australia. Sales manager Laine’s areas include Spain, Portugal, Americas and India. Both experienced professionals are focusing in expanding the international availability of Tamtron weighing systems and are a great resource to the sales team.

Mr Ritala, Master of Science (Technology), has worked previously for over 10 years in mechanical engineering companies such as Sisu Axles Oy and Cargotec Finland Oy in international B2B sales management functions. Markus looks forward to being able to further develop the Tamtron distributor network and getting to work with the advanced technological solutions Tamtron products present.

Tamtron’s business is interesting and for me, the varied customer segments are very exciting and refreshing to get to know. Tamtron is both an international company and the hands-on partner locally so I look forward to working with the distributors and OEMs Tamtron co-operates with. I think Tamtron has the right energy and focus to succeed in this demanding field of business.

Mr Laine, Bacheror of Business Administration and Management, is returning to Tamtron after 2 years in the IT sector. Tuomas worked in the Tamtron exports team in a similar role from 2011 till 2013 and has an international background: for nearly 30 years he lived in the south and north Americas before settling to Finland.

I am confident that the Tamtron scales have great potential in numerous markets globally. I am thrilled to be back with Tamtron and I look forward to getting back into the weighing business. We need to grow our export distributor network as demand for weighing solutions is growing globally. I am looking forward to meeting our current distributors and clients so that we can collect feedback and introduce the right weighing solutions to our valuable international customers.

Strongly investing in technologies, customer experience and growth Tamtron is an agile, practised and a stable operator.  The demand to manage weighing information increases all the time as the material handling and logistics operations are being developed and stricter legislation and laws are implemented. Tamtron is a forerunner in scales, weighing equipment and weighing information utilization through cloud servicing, and it generates digital solutions, Internet of Things applications and products developed with a customer-oriented perspective.

Above all Tamtron is a technological company. Information from scales and weighing equipment and its qualifiability and implementation in optimizing businesses’ operations and greater ecosystems equals savings and safety to our clients in different fields. Our new managers have a vital role in developing Tamtron’s offering to an even more customer-oriented course, states the chief executive officer mister Mikko Keskinen.
